Stewart M. Lamle is game designer and inventor who invented the FAROOK(R) game, also known as WIZDOM(R), "The first high-level strategy game since Chess." In 2005, he won a multi-million dollar breach of contract claim against Mattel, the world’s largest toy and game company, even though he is a non-lawyer who represented himself single-handedly for over seven years against a team of lawyers from the nation's largest pure litigation law firm. The ruling at the U.S. Court of Appeals gave Lamle the right to have a jury trial in federal court. Lamle said he received an undisclosed amount of money from the toy giant in a settlement that year that he described as "huge." He is also suing the City of San Monica over his right to promote and sell Farook on public streets.
Stewart Lamle was the president of Amuse Inc. and is currently CEO of WizdomZone, Ltd. He lives in New York City and Santa Monica, CA where he invents games, puzzles and other stuff.
He invented WIZ-BLOX(R), The Mind Builder, the 3-D tangram puzzle with tens of thousands of 3-D sculptural puzzles and answers, and is used as a math manipulative to teach concepts from arithmetic to the Pythagorean theorem.
He is also known for patenting a new form of gambling that he said gives casinos a means of competing with the multi million-dollar jackpots offered by state lotteries by link hundreds or even thousands of slot machines together to create a game that pools money from each player into a huge jackpot with very long odds. He patented a "Method and Apparatus for Supplying Playing Cards at Random to the Casino Table" which consists of a printed and a card stock store which are mounted on the underside of a table.
